Kindergarten Update

January 4, 2016

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to the second semester! I hope you all had a fun and relaxing Winter Break with your family and friends! I look forward to seeing my little buddies tomorrow and am sure they'll be anxious to share stories about the break!


Thanks to all the parents who assisted with or provided supplies for our Winter Party! It was another successful event and the children enjoyed the snacks and games. You all are the best!

This Week's Fun...

*We won't introduce any sight words this week...we'll just have a review of previously introduced words.

*We'll begin a new unit in our reading series. This unit is centered around exploring the outdoors, especially noticing changes in the seasons and weather.

*We'll begin a weather study with our new science resources. I know the kids will be interested in this subject and will enjoy the activities.

*We'll begin Topic 8 in our math series. This topic will be an introduction to subtraction.

*During Writer's Workshop, we'll introduce a unit on opinion writing. In Kindergarten we tackle this genre by writing book reviews.
